It’s only for Republicans and Constitutionalists, but early Voting in Ada County began February 22nd and will continue through March 4th. It will be a good opportunity to test the new voting devices.
You mark your ballot as usual, but when it is slipped into the “tabulator,” the vote is recorded and at the close of voting, a printout is created and then the locked tabulator is sealed and taken to election central where a thumb drive is removed and downloaded into the master computer.
Early Voting locations are open from February 22nd to March 4th, Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm.
Meridian City Hall – 33 E Broadway Ave, Meridian.
Ada County Indigent Services Building – 252 E Front St, Suite 199, Boise, ID
(East of the Ada County Courthouse, between Avenue A and Broadway, free parking available)
Ada County Elections – 400 N. Benjamin Ln, Suite 100, Boise.
(Also, open Saturday, February 27th from 10am to 4pm)
The County’s new election system is in place in all Early Voting locations, and will also be used at all precincts in the upcoming Presidential Primary on March 8th. During Early Voting and on Election Day, members of the Republican and Constitution Parties will be able to express their preference for President.
For local Democrats, the Idaho Democratic Party is hosting a Presidential Caucus on March 22nd. Ada County Elections is not involved with the administration of the caucus and voters should contact the Democratic Party directly for details at http://adademocrats.org/ or http://idahodems.org/
